A Freedom's Debt
A sorrow so painful, I can barely breathe
It's so heavy... I can't clench my teeth
It clings to my body and refuses to let go
Even now, it still spreads-- I can feel it grow
I act and sound normal, one hasn't a suspicion
Yet what they see is merely an illusion
My indifferent pretence crumbles down once
In reaction to what they find a nuisance
They do not understand me, a lonesome soul
Their pitying words consume me and leave a hole
How dare they claim to know what I feel
Then tell me that it will all soon heal
I've been fighting for a very long time
'Twould be longer than a thousand-page rhyme
Loneliness, used correctly, is a way to be free
Yet sooner or later, you'll have to pay a fee
I prolonged the taste of freedom too much
Savouring, lingering on it was the final touch
My debt: acknowledging the pain of being lonely
A Gem In HeavenIf angels dreamed, I'd touch the sky.
If their hearts raced, I'd soar and fly.
I'd follow you in a second if you were among them,
For in life I have finally found a gem.
A gem so precious and true...
No, I wouldn't be able to live without you.
five hour energyi suppose
last week was only an aftershock
of the earthquake you were before.
this place used to vibrate
with metal strings and melodic,
testimonies to life,
emitting coffee-scented moods
and the burn of it too.
i had memorized the
sounds of silence,
i couldn't help but relish it.
no longer had i known
the sounds of folk
and scent of mocha-
you became nothing more
than an echo of the laughter
i so desperately needed to hear again.
then the echoes got louder,
bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest
i walked into your room
expecting exactly what i found-
an unmade bed,
and an empty beer
(the one that you insisted you needed
just days ago).
i pressed my nose
into the pillow
for incense and cologne and starbucks
to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
i already know
what a clean sheet smells like."
how strong an aftershock can be,
